Core Value Portrayed: Excellence in All We Do

How does the individual portray that core value?

Excellence in All We Do: “Tech. Sgt. Adcock portrays this value through his actions as the unit resource advisor,” said Master Sgt. Carlton Wilson, 352nd SOMXS commander’s executive. “With this, his main responsibility is advising our commander on funds. However, he spends a majority of his day helping unit members with Defense Travel System problems. In addition, he takes phone calls when off duty, to assist members with their travel issues. Since starting the job as an RA, he has ensured tasks are completed on time and within budget. I have seen him go to various funding meetings and spend hours after work making sure the paperwork was accurate, which led to our unit ending fiscal year 2017 funding with a balanced budget. Lastly, in his off time he occasionally aides his fellow military members by assisting members with their resiliency activities.”
